No Tax Increases!

Fellow Burqueños,

We know that our beloved city has enormous potential but faces many challenges. We are working to address those challenges head on with lasting solutions, and we need your help.

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 is Election Day and there will be issues on the ballot that make a big impact in our community. For the first time, our City election is combined with the elections for APD, CNM and AMAFCA. We want to make sure you know about some of the important issues that will come after the candidates.

There will be items such as the proposed General Obligation (G.O.) Bond that, if passed, will help us continue to make our city a better place to live for our neighbors and our children. And all without raising taxes.

If passed, the Bonds will fund projects such as:

  • New library in the International District
  • Shade structures and playground equipment for parks
  • Railyards redevelopment
  • Improvements to senior centers
  • Centralized emergency shelter and affordable housing
  • Police vehicles and equipment for APD and AFR

Other items on the ballot will include public finance changes that focus on accountability to voters and increased transparency and access to local government. These reforms are necessary to bring our City in line with decisions made the Supreme Court of the United States. A Transit Tax Renewal will also be on the ballot to continue funding maintenance and repair of roads in our city, as well as new bike ways and walking trails. That tax is a renewal, so you will not see an increase in taxes if it is passed.

Your voice matters. Let's come together on November 5 as One Albuquerque to make our community safer, more innovative, and more inclusive by voting "YES" on the G.O. Bonds and on all of the ballot items that will help our City reach its full potential. Find more information on the election at cabq.gov/vote.

We'll see you at the polls!

Your Mayor,
Timothy M. Keller
